    Professional

    I hired Kim for my engagement shoots in Lake Louise and I could not have asked for a better photographer. The pictures came out better than I expected. Also she sent the pictures much earlier than I had expected. I highly recommend her!

    Super Impressed!

    Kim was absolutely amazing to work with!
    Since we are not from the area we let Kim choose all the locations and she definitely did not disappoint!!
    She is super friendly and organized, we could have not picked anyone better to capture our wedding day. The pictures are absolutely stunning!

    Lake Louise Wedding

    Kim photographed our wedding at Lake Louise on August 28th. When we started looking for photographers, it only took one meeting with Kim to know she was the photographer for us. Kim was extremely responsive to all of our emails and calls, and even helped provide insight for the wedding day. Kim was friendly, professional, and flexible. If we could give Kim more than five stars we would do so without hesitation. Her photographs were better than we could have hoped for and I cannot imagine using any other photographer. We highly recommend Kim for your wedding. She will exceed all of your expectations.

    Beautiful Engagement Photos!

    My fiance worked with Kim to capture our engagement and Emerald Lake Lodge and she was amazing! She was knowledgeable about the location and the best spots to take photos, and was great to work with. She got our sneak peek photos to us so quickly so we were able to share the news with friends and family. Her photos were gorgeous, and we would absolutely recommend contacting Kim for your engagement/wedding photos!

    Kim Payant Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much Jaclyn and Tyler for your great review! I had an amazing time capturing your proposal at Emerald Lake Lodge and doing your engagement photos afterwards! I'm happy to hear you love the photos! Thanks again and I wish you all the best!

    Absolutely amazing!

    We are so in love with the photos Kim took and she was an absolute delight to work with! We had to postpone our wedding two times due to covid and she was very understanding and communicative during those two years. We finally got to have our wedding and meet Kim during summer of 22 and we couldn't be happier with our experience. She is so down-to-earth and makes you feel so comfortable getting the perfect shots. Kim went above and beyond with tips for our wedding day, pinning all the groomsmen + grooms boutonnieres, helping me figure out the non-existent bustle on my dress, and most importantly giving the best tip on how to use the toilet in your wedding dress!
    We without a doubt would recommend her for any photography needs you have.

    Incredible number of stunning photos

    If you're looking for a photographer in Banff, look no further! Kim is an experienced photographer who over-delivered for our wedding. She captured many special candid moments during our wedding. As well, she was efficient when taking group photos and switching people in and out of the posed shots that we had requested. All of our friends and family were absolutely blown away from the photos as well. She took stunning indoor photos and when we were outside she really captured the landscape beautifully. We highly recommend her!
